    Built this one, now I'm bored. I shoot my other AR way more. So I want to get rid of this for something I'll shoot more. Here's the specifics on the gun. It started as a FACTORY Bushmaster rifle, not a kit gun. It is a flat-top upper with a 20" non-threaded, 1 in 9 twist barrel. It has a standard trigger and a standard A2 buttstock. I bought the gun used from another forum member. I've put 100 rounds through it since I bought it. There is a bit of wear on the top rail where accesories have been added and removed, but overall the gun is in great shape. I've added the following items:

    YHM Flip-Up front sight gas block. $120
    YHM Free-Float Handguard. $160
    Magpul MIAD grip w/ full kit. $40
    Midwest Industries Side Sling Mount $35
    A2 Detachable Carry Handle $75

    I also added a Burris XTR-14 scope. It is a 1-4x24 scope with a .223 calibrated illuminated reticle. It has Burris 1" rings with a Burris Fastfire II holosight on top of the rear ring. Its a cool set-up. The scope set-up cost $850. I have not had the scope bore-sighted yet (gun has not been fired with scope on).

    This is basically all set-up as a designated marksman rifle. It should fire great. I have over $2100 into this set up. I will let it go for $2000 with two 20-round PMags and 100 rounds of PMC FMJ ammo. I'd prefer not to split it up right now.

    I will consider trades and partial trades.

    I would be interested in the fastfire if you decide to seperate it.

    I know. I got another one after I got this one from you, Cougfan. I shoot the other one more. Can't justify keeping both. No interested in seperating the scope components at this time.

    As for what I'm interested in for trades, I mainly like handguns. S&W revolvers are particularly of interest. I mostly like shootable guns rather than collectors or safe queens. Would also be interested in a partial trade for a DSA FAL or a different FAL plus cash. Happy to entertain multi-gun trades or guns plus or minus money. Can't hurt to ask if you have something in mind.

    ADDED: I'd also be interested in a partial trade for a Rem. 700 heavy barrel or other heavy barrel .308, or maybe an M1 Garand or M1 carbine plus cash.
    I also be happy to take a nice hunting rifle or two to even out the trade.

    Back up for sale. I am open to offers, especially partial trades, however...

    First, I'm not desperate to sell. I don't need the money to pay bills or anything (thankfully). Only reason I'm selling is to get something I shoot more. Second, I listed everything I have into the gun and at $2000, I'm taking a loss. If you offer a trade, please don't ask for twice as much as your gun is worth in trade value. If you have an offer though, send it along...


    I would be particularly interested in the following items: Remington 700 PSS or LTR in .308 or maybe .223; An FAL, especially if it has inch pattern hardware and takes metric mags; A .45-70 lever action Marlin guide gun (I prefer stainless steel). Maybe an underfolder AK; Smith and Wesson Model 18 or Model 10; Custom 10/22; S&W M&P 9mm or .45; Para LDA 1911. Most of these things would require cash or something else added on your end.

    I might trade or sell the rifle without the scope or vice-versa. The Rifle alone would be $1250, the scope would be $875.

    I have a new Springfield 1911 that has been redone by Wilson combat that I would trade for just the rifle. Pistol bought new for 600 and taken directly to Wilson for 750 worth of parts/labor, about 4 mags worth of gi ball ammo down the barrel so I would say it's new.

    Still available. Lets make this easy. I'll keep the scope and fastfire sight. So include just the following:

    Rifle: $800
    YHM Flip-Up Front Sight: $120
    YHM Free FLoat Handguard: $160
    Magpul MIAD Grip (Full Kit): $45
    Midwest Industries Side Sling Mount: $35
    A2 Carry Handle: $75
    2 Magpul 20 round PMag: $35
    100 rounds of PMC: $60
    Total: $1330

    Will sell just the above for $1250. No trades unless we've spoken on it before (this means you Orus...:))

    I can probably deliver to the Willamette Valley, as I need to come over there in the next week anyway...

    ADDED: Understanding that everyone is short of money right now, I will accept partial trade offers. I need to get at least $600 to $700 cash to finish a project, but am pretty open to trades to make up the difference. No SKS's, Taurus handguns, or hunting shotguns, both other than that...
